Police are searching for a robbery suspect (please see the images below) after the Revelstoke Branch of the CIBC was held up earlier today. Police received the report just after 10 a.m. that a male had entered the branch and produced a note demanding money. There was an indication that he had a firearm however nothing was produced. The man made off with an undisclosed amount of money. No one was injured during the holdup.
The male is described as being caucasian and in his 40s, appeared to have a brush cut and was wearing glasses, a blue ball cap and pyjama type pants. Security cameras in the bank captured the suspect in the bank’s ATM lobby just prior to the robbery without his hat and glasses disguise.
The Revelstoke Forensic Identification Section examined the scene and the investigation is continuing. Police are hoping that releasing the security footage will help identify the suspect.
